Question about Philips Flat Panel Televisions

1 Answer

Phillips 42" flat screen ty

Has two very wide horizontal bars across the screen, the lower one being wider. When the situation first began, there were random and MANY red (mostly) and black pixels splashed across the screen which seem to be organized in "blocks" of space. The turning off and on, checking it against how it displays DVDs, completely unplugging it to allow the capacitors to discharge (which usually works very well, but when it has happen before, it's been when we turn it on. We just turn it off, wait and start over and things work. This time it had been on for about 6 hours and suddenly, this failure. Husband is searching for manuals at the moment, as we have moved things... any ideas?

Well, I spent $20 on FixYa which did absolutely nothing and now and waiting for the Phillips to show up to take my TV to their shop (which alone will cost me $100 in itself) and wait for approximately 2 weeks to find out if the fix costs more than the TV is worth, in which case, I'll be out thousands of dollars, plus $20 to you, plus the Phillips charges AND whatever a replacement TV costs.

Did that answer your question?

The text along the sides of the tv screen are not completely in view


you need to change the 'zoom' on the tv by the remote.
Normal mode frames the 4:3 video to the 16:9 picture area by displaying it in its original aspect ratio, with vertical gray or black bars on both sides of the screen. The disadvantage of this method is the fact that the image is small by virtue of not using the entire width of the screen. This is also known as the 4:3 mode.
Full mode Full mode horizontally stretches the 4:3 video evenly across the entire width of the screen. This is the proper mode to display anamorphic video. If used for standard aspect ratio video, everything on the screen will appear wider than normal. Contrast this with anamorphic video displayed without processing on a 4:3 display, in which people on the screen will appear taller than normal. This is also known as the 16:9 mode.
Zoom mode Zoom mode evenly stretches the picture both horizontally and vertically, until the picture fills the entire width of the screen. This crops out the top and bottom of the picture. This mode is used for letterboxed and open matte video.
14:9 mode Main article: 14:9
In 14:9 mode, the picture is magnified more than in Normal mode, but less than in Zoom mode, while retaining the original aspect ratio.
Wide Zoom mode Wide Zoom mode, also called Just mode, Horizon, or Smart Stretch, progressively stretches the picture horizontally, less in the middle and more on the edges. This allows normal aspect ratio video to be displayed across the entire width of the screen, with minimal cropping, and with much less of the unpleasing visual stretching effect of Full mode.

Hi have a samsung 42 inch plasma, all of a sudden it has a band 20cm wide of dotted lines going across the whole screen, some channels or when playstation in use the band gets wider, does not seem to...


if the band is horizontal your tv has bad y-buffer board. Usually there are 2 buffer boards- top and bottom. if the problem is in the top half of the screen replace the top board, otherwise replace bottom board.
but better to replace both a the same time.

if the tv has a vertical lines from top to bottom it may have bad plasma panel and can be considered as not economical to repair.

Are the solid horizontal black lines or colored lines. If colored lines there is a posibility that your Y-main, and upper and lower Y-buffers are bad. If black you have a bad plasma panel.
